When Gary met Elvis

Before the ceremonial tee shot at the 2014 Humana Challenge, Player recounted the story. In 1961 Player had been on the US morning show Good Morning America when the presenter asked him what his hobbies were.”I love music!” was his reply and he proceeded with his own Elvis impression of Blue Suede Shoes.

Apparently Elvis had seen the show and proceeded to phone Player. “‘I want to meet you!'” Elvis said, to which Player replied: “I want to meet you too!”

Player, who was about 26 at the time and a big Presley fan, said that when he arrived on set Elvis stopped production, put on a jacket and approached him.
